Lost Sean Connery period drama resurfaces

“Da shvedanya, Mish Karenina …
The name’sh Wronski, count Wronski.
And you do have a lishenshe to shwoon.”

For the love of all things ancient – look at what cropped up on BBC News today! An adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina has been re-discovered in the BBC archives and will be released on DVD in September. First broadcast in early November 1961, the Russian drama featured a young Sean Connery and Claire Bloom – who starred together in Bond flick Dr. No a year later apparently. No cravat on the picture, but Sean Connery in a uniform – oooh.
